What is LEED?

The LEED® Green Building Certification Program, developed by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is an internationally recognized green building program that works to promote sustainability. It provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions.

For commercial buildings and neighbourhoods to earn LEED certification, a project must satisfy all LEED prerequisites and earn a minimum 40 points on a 110-point LEED rating system scale. Homes must earn a minimum of 45 points on a 136-point scale.

Using the environment-friendly CONFORM® pre-finished wall system can contribute towards a possible 15 LEED points spearheading your certification process.

LEED certification not only demonstrates your environmental responsiveness but also boosts your bottom line, making your business more competitive.

To assist builders, operators and owners who want to build “green” and maximize both economic and environmental performance, here is detailed information regarding the LEED contributions offered by CONFORM®.
